HMMM.  Mr.Malty says Timothy Taylor for 1469.  I hope WL is Sammy.  I'll do a little investigating.

Paul,

That's the Sam Smith yeast, right?  Oh man, thanks for letting me know!

Looks good!  I would go with the ESB yeast.  It gives a maltier profile.

Agreed.  My first choice too!

Hopefully you're just having a party!   ;D

Good score!

If you are not interested in building it, that is a great way to break in to all-grain.  I'd stop short of a RIMS or HERMES system until you are certain of your addiction..... ;)

Kaiser beat me to it.  I remembered as I looked at a recipe that first wort hopping was really helping with boilovers as well. 

I also agree with Euge that a 20G kettle would be much better.

I think mine is 19 cu ft but it holds 4 carboys.  Great for lagers.

I switched to a blow off tube for everything so I didn't have to worry about a collar.

+1-I have 3 tanks sitting around at all times.

Just brewed 10G of Steam Beer last night and have 5G fermenting away at 58F and 5G fermenting away at 67F.  Used 2112 in both.  Another interesting experiment!

Yeah, I just watch really closely and feather the flame if it starts to get out of control. Or stir the pot. I have heard that other have good luck with a spray bottle of water to knock down the break foam.

+1 to the water spray bottle.  It really helps....forgot about that.

Hey Red!  Long time no talk....

Here's what I have so far:

8# Marris Otter
7oz Brown Malt
4oz Crystal 60
4oz Toasted Flaked Oats
3.5oz Chocolate Malt
1.25oz EKG at 60
.5oz Fuggles at 60
.5 Fuggles at 15
Either using Wyeast ESB or Irish Ale

Efficiency:  80%
16 SRM which lines up with Daniels "Designing Great Beers"
32.7 IBU-Designing GB Says 34 IBU
OG-1.049
FG-1.013

I too boil 14 gallons in a 15 gallon pot.  I don't see an issue with your method.  Fermcap is one way to stop boilovers but I'm not a fan and I've heard some negative things about it.  With a careful eye and quick temperature adjustments, boilovers can usually be averted.  I've topped off my fermenters with water just prior to pitching the yeast in the past as well, but made the adjustments in my brewing software ahead of time to compensate for the dilution.

Now I just keep a close eye on it until the first gallon or so is boiled off and then boil more vigorously.

I'm trying to clone this and have seen a lot of different recipes.  Some with Brown Malt, some without, some with toasted oats some not.  I thought I would put it out here and see what the forum thought.  Anyone have a good recipe?

WOW, Freshops is expensive compared to Hops Direct.  I think I'll wait for the pellets and pick up some Simcoe, Citra, and Amarillo.

Dave

just a heads up, but, you aren't going to be able to get Simcoe pellets from hopsdirect. $1.85 p/o of simcoe is pretty much going rate.

Good to know, thanks.

Already in at Hops direct for whole hops.  Amarillo was out when I ordered.  Don't remember Simcoe.
